This harness can be adjusted from a toy sized dog, through to large breeds, it can fit your young dog and will probably still fit when it is fully grown.
Blackdog Wear has developed the "Y Front" Harness System to allow a wide range of size adjustment while maintaining an exceptionally close fit to an individual dog's body shape.
This is most important in a sport harness, where a dog is working hard and needs full body mobility and it is especially important to have a well fitting harness for young dogs learning a sport.
The Girth Straps will actively tighten if a dog tries to back out of the harness, so safely ensuring no escaping backwards.
We have often been asked for a fully adjustable sport harness for growing dogs, the Y-Front System has been developed just for this reason.
With Black Dog's legendary comfort and robustness in a great fitting sport harness and the flexibility to provide that great fit across an exceptionally wide range of body shapes, the Y-Front Handle/ Flyball Harness has the formula to allow your dog great performances.
By measuring in a Figure 8 as shown, your dog gets the correct size and best fit in a Y-Front Harness.
Check the description below to see how and where the "Figure 8 Body Measurement" should be taken.
Use a soft tape measure.
Place one end of the tape in the middle of your dogs back (above its front legs) bring tape down and under the front leg, bring tape across the front of the chest and cross over as you take it around the back of your dogs neck and back down across the chest and under the other leg to come back and join with the tape on your dogs back. (as shown)
Pull it to be a tight, snug fit and read off the measurement.
Now check the chart below, to select the correct size.

Both my Greyhounds have these harness's & they are the best - would never walk them on a collar ever again ! Fabulous product
Flyball harnessBy: Elita on 18 November 2022My 2 border collies have had their black dog wear for 13yrs now & are still in great condition. Our harness is the older version with the lead material handle which has been superb. The flyball harness has been great for comfort & free mobility as they run, walk & swim in it plus plenty of jumping though not in agility comps & the adjustability as they grew has been fantastic. I chose this harness initially for the handle for when they were younger & training to help with off lead control, when they pulled on lead - it never felt like they were heavy tugging, I always have easy control. We are getting a new puppy & the first place I’ve come to get his gear is back here - so happy to see your amazing products still going & expanding!
Highly RecommendBy: Lynne W on 25 November 2021I use this harness not for flyball but for general walking. My dog can walk, run, swim and lie down comfortably in it. Its very strong. My dog swims in it most days and its easy to rinse and machine wash. The handle is perfect as security measure to easily grab. A cut rubber of handle to make it more practical for cleaning. Doesn't seem to hurt my dog athritis in shoulders. Both my dog and I are picky with harnesses and I highly recommend to anyone this harness.
